Imagine if the next time you assigned reading, your students knew all the challenging vocabulary in the text before they read it. Then they could focus on learning the information, understanding the themes, and appreciating the craft ¡ª rather than stumbling over the words.
They¡¯d come to class better prepared to talk and to write about their reading, and you¡¯d be able to dig deeper into the curriculum.
Prepare your students for each and every reading assignment. Here¡¯s how:
We¡¯ll expose your students to the most relevant academic words in the text, with examples lifted directly from the source. We teach the multiple meanings of words for deeper understanding, so they¡¯ll know the word for this assignment and anywhere else they encounter it. Then we¡¯ll follow up over time, working with students on their ¡°trouble words¡± until they master them, and offering brush-up questions to ensure that the learning sticks.
Vocabulary.com makes it easy to integrate vocabulary instruction with what you¡¯re already teaching. Our vast list library has thousands of resources for the most commonly taught texts, so all you have to do is search for a list and assign it to your students.
They can practice the words outside of class, and you can feel confident that when they tackle the next reading assignment, they¡¯ve learned the specific vocabulary words that will boost comprehension.
